    I was thinking of making some SWEPs for GM, but I'm lazy. Anybody willing to help?

    He wants someone to program some scripted weapons for Garry's Mod (based on Source) in LUA, a programming language used in that mod.

    sooo... SWEP would be "scripted weapon" and GM "Garry's Mod".

    How is this related to Cave Story, other than the fact that you're going to make a 5-second-swep of the Polar Star or something?

    Yes, I'm asking for help on a 5-second SWEP.[/sarcasm]
    I'm asking for help because I want it to be worth something. I was planning on doing all or most of the weapons using custom sounds and effects. I just am too lazy and unmotivated to do it myself...and I hate scripting stuff.

    PS: S.P. Topic titles and google are your friend.

    First of all: You should work if you want something, not the others, just because you're lazy. Requests being simply ignored most the time.

    Eh, when will you people learn, that it's assembler and not "scripting stuff", it's too hard if you don't know any assembler, just don't touch it then.

    Yes and forum search is your friend too, you would have already found out about weapon hacking! You want the help, not me!

    Actually, he is talking about code in Lua, not in assembly.

    However, I'm not interested.

    Lua? The Cave Story code is in Assembler, you need to know Assembler if you want to hack Cave Story or writing hacking programms for it, otherwise if this isn't Cave Story related the thread will be closed :D

    Well, let me explain it this way.

    The OP wishes to create some of the weapons from Cave Story for a mod for another game - namely, GMod. As a sort of tribute.

    So based on that, choose weather to close the thread or keep it open.

    Myself, I'd keep it open but move it to a different board, but that's just me.

    Yeah, Lua is extremely awesome. I'm coding something which is also going to use Lua.
